Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates retrofuturistic technology and aesthetics inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the Victorian era or the American “Wild West,” where steam power was in mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power.
“Some people say I’m obsessed with machines... They’re wrong. I’m obsessed with what machines can do.” - Jules Verne, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea¹
This quote expresses Verne’s fascination and admiration with machines and their potential to transform human life and explore new frontiers. Verne embraced technology and is considered one of the fathers of science fiction, and one of the pioneers of steampunk literature. His novels feature many inventions and devices that were ahead of his time, such as submarines, airships, rockets, and robots.
Both Shoosty® and Verne embrace technology and the future.
